If you think this is an advertisement for a trade school that will teach you how to run sound for mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Habra, think again—Mexican Institute of Sound is a fancy title for producer/DJ Camilo Lara. It's a musical project with heavy electronic leanings that pundits have likened to "Hot Chip visiting the Buena Vista Social Club." Offering the best in postmodern sonics, the Mexican Institute of Sound relies on 45,000 vinyl platters to create a danceable blend of mariachi, cumbia and hip-hop.
